This sounds like a good direction to go, and should work right away
when testing against the raw classes. With our automated tests, the
jars are distributed from a build location to various test machines.
I'm sure that others who do automated testing here probably do
something similar. So when testing with jars we will probably want to
be able to override the location in derbyTesting.jarPath with either a
standard relative location or a user-specified location. Then the test
machines just need to checkout the directories from db/derby/jars that
they need for the upgrade tests to the standard location, or wherever
they choose and set the override property.
